Susresti ćemo se na samom ulazu u selo, kraj crkve. Dol je maleno otočko naselje, ali zbog svoje ljepote i tradicionalnog stila učinit će vam se kao da ulazite u prošlost, zbog čega je posjetiteljima jedno od omiljenijih mjesta na otoku.
Ima samo 100 stanovnika, ali, za razliku od ostalih dijelova otoka, turizam nas nije pokvario. Otočni život ovdje je još uvijek istinski. Na mojoj turi po selu ispričat ću vam priče o našem svakodnevnom životu i neke zanimljive stvari iz naše prošlosti, pokazati vam svoje omiljena mjesta. Selo je vrlo malo, ali brdovito, posjetit ćemo nekoliko ljupkih mjesta s pogledom. Razgovarat ćemo o legendama, čudovištima, brojnim ovcama kojih u Dolu ima koliko hoćeš, o življenju u špiljama koje je tu do nedavno bila sasvim uobičajena stvar. Cilj nam je osjetiti jedinstveni mediteranski smiraj. Posjetit ćemo naš dom (Kaštil), 400 godina stara utvrda u kojoj živim i radim sa svojom obitelji. Obaći ćemo kuću, a onda sjesti zajedno i razgovarati, kušati domaći ovčji sir i vino koje proizvodimo na našem imanju.
We will meet at very entrance of village, by the church. Dol is small island village but, because of it beauty and traditional style that will make you feel like you are entering the past, it is one of the most adored place on island by visitors.
It has only 100 inhabitats and, unlike other parts of the Island, tourism didn’t spoil us. Island life is still authentic here. On my hour long tour through village I will tell you stories about our everyday life, and some interesting things from our past, show you my favorite places. Village is very small, but hilly, and we will visit few beutifull spots with view. We will talk about legneds, monsters, so many sheep that poeple from this village own and living in the caves that used to be a thing here. My goal is to make you feel this unique mediterian traquillity. We will visit my home, a 400 year old catle where I live and work with my family. We will tour house, and then sit together and talk, try some local sheep chees and wine that we grow and make at our farm.

- 4 hours
- 8 people max
- Cijena po osobi / Price per person: 300 kn
- Includes: finger food, and – the cake tasting
First, we will walk around the village, learn about its history and the importance of the cake for this village. Then we will go back to my kitchen and bake the cake.
In the meantime, we will try cheese, prosciutto and anchovies, some wine, hear some stories of my family, and then, when it is done, taste the cake, and eat it.
Dol, a village settled in the quiet valley of island Brač, tells the story of Hrapoćuša –the story of the stone, the story of the cake. The love story.
Hrapoćuša celebrates love as a wedding cake – beautiful, rich cake full of texture made out of simple ingredients: walnuts, sugar, flour and eggs.
It resembles the stone with the same name, and that is why they have both named Hrapoćuša.
Every woman in Dol knows how to make it, and every family has a little secret. For centuries is the symbol of special moments and it represented both rich and poor villagers, with the simple ingredients with rich flavour.
SECRET OF GOSPODNETIĆ MARTINOVIĆ – about us
I still remember the first time I tried the cake, I was nine and it was late spring. It was time of the year when summer colours appear and warm air smells like flowers. There was a celebration in our family salon, many people walking by, laughing and talking, and I wandered around them amazed with food and nice dresses, seeking a place to be alone. And, then I saw it on the table, golden coloured, so different from everything I saw before.
There is something about this cake, something that makes you remember the first time you saw it, the first time you tasted it.
